Merry Christmas

'Twas the night after Christmas
and all through the house
the gifts were all given
(the cat brought a mouse).

Ev in her labcoat
and I in my jammies
Have now settled down
from our pre-Christmas whammies.

'The stockings,
once hung by the chimney with care
now litter the floor
spilling loot everywhere:

Candy and crayons
and movies to thrill,
Posters to paint on
and scarves for the chill.

The roast beast is devoured,
the wine bottle's dry.
The dishes are washed,
and I wish I'd baked pie.

Now Carrie, now Katie,
Now Grant and the dogs,
Now Rob and the cats
are somewhere sawing logs.

The fire is blazing
and the house has grown still,
so I'm taking a moment
to share some good will.

Fom us here in Nowhere
to you in Wherevever
Here's hoping you all had a day
you can treasure.

Aww, thanks. I told Ev I should post some pictures to prove that we really do celebrate Christmas. :)
